I'm trying to use an Android emulator to use services running on my local machine. I have a site running under IIS which in my host file looks like this:

I have several sites running under Apache Tomcat. My host file for Tomcat related sites:  # port:8090  # port:8081  # port:8082  # port:8086

What I have tried so far (in the following steps):

adb pull /etc/hosts

Edit Android host file:        localhost

adb remount
adb push hosts /etc/hosts

Then I try to visit in the browser and am told webpage not found. I’d at least expect it to go to

What I would ideally like is to be able to go to any site on my local machine which are specified in the above host file examples.

I am on Windows 7 and using Tomcat 6. The emulator I am using is nexus one.

I've been told here that this may be a networking issue -
